The lame media were quick to realize that Iggy had blundered and disappeared his comments. I had to search their sites to actually find the articles.
Finance abortion, Ignatieff urges Harper
Late Tuesday, Liberal MP Paul Szabo said he was caught off guard by the announcement and claims Ignatieff doesn't have a consensus for the stand among Liberals.
"I am a pro-life MP and there are many of my colleagues in the Liberal caucus who will protect the unborn in their decisions as Parliamentarians, and should matters come before the House they will continue to act accordingly," Szabo told the anti-abortion website, LifeSiteNews.
I have had my disagreements with Paul Szabo, but he has earned my respect by being a staunch supporter of life. If I lived in his riding, I would vote for him. He is what the Liberals used to be, principled. Good for him!
Harper must make abortion part of health pledge, Ignatieff says
Liberal Leader questions whether Conservatives will shy award from funding family-planning agencies
Family planning agencies that support abortion, are not helping women to plan FAMILIES! Unicef and United Way are off of my list of charities because they support abortions, not families. How can you have a family if you abort the baby?
At least the National Post is not hiding Ignatieff's comments.
Kevin Libin: Ignatieff's audacious stance in favour of abortion
“This has nothing to do with abortion, or gay marriage or capital punishment, in case those are going to be [Mr. Ignatieff’s] next arguments on this issue,” said Dimitri Soudas, the Prime Minister’s spokesman. “At the end of the day, maternal and child health is about saving lives of vulnerable children and mothers in the developing world.”
By bringing abortion into a discussion where it had not previously been, and then making it a key element, Mr. Ignatieff seemed to go much further, says Tom Flanagan, a University of Calgary political scientist and former campaign manager for the Conservative party.
“Of all the issues that you could possibly raise about women’s health, why would you start with abortion?” Mr. Flanagan says. “What kind of mindset is that that you have to start killing unborn babies in order to help people? It seems to be based on the now discredited theory that poverty in the Third World is based on overpopulation. I don’t think any serious scholar believes that anymore.”
Mr. Ignatieff was unavailable for comment
Every fiber in my body screams out at the horror of abortion. You can not candy coat it as only "cells", not if you have had those "cells" kicking you in the middle of the night. What is the most disturbing factor in the abortion issue is that it is women encouraging other women to kill their babies. How sad.
Feminists want to have balls and a penis, not equality. They hate having a womb and they want other women to hate their womb's as well. To bad they do not understand that a woman's power is the very fact that they can give life. Bringing a life into this world is awe inspiring, it is a sacred trust between the mother and child. For these feminists to think that women in third world countries do not want their babies is disgusting. They should be standing beside their sisters, not trying to impose their lack of morals on other women. Many of these women are Muslims or Christians who would be going against their faith by having an abortion, but immoral people need to bring moral people down to their level, so they can have company in their misery. Now you know why feminists are not fighting harder to protect women in Afghanistan.
Ignatieff stepped in it big time by trying to painting himself and his party as the party in favour of abortions. Go ahead, cater to the far left wing feminists in your party, it will not serve you well.
